(The door opens. The son comes in.)

Son: Good afternoon, mother. Good afternoon, Mrs. Nigger-Baiter.

Mrs. Nigger-Baiter: Ooh, he's walking already!

Mrs. Shazam: Yes, he's such a clever little boy, aren't you? Coochy coochy coo . . .

Mrs. Nigger-Baiter: Hello, coochy coo...

Mrs. Shazam: Hello, hello... (they chuck him under the chin)

Mrs. Nigger-Baiter: Oochy coochy. (the son smiles a little tight smile) Look at him laughing... ooh, he's a chirpy little fellow. Isn't he a chirpy little fellow ... eh? eh? Does he talk Does he talk, eh?

Son: Of course I talk, I'm Minister for Overseas Development.

Mrs. Nigger-Baiter: Ooh, he's a clever little boy - he's a clever little boy. (gets out a rattle) Do you like your rattle? Do you like your rattle? Look at his little eyes following it ... look at his iggy piggy piggy little eyeballs eh... oo... he's got a tubby tumotum. Oh, he's got a tubby tum-tum.

Son: (whilst Mrs. Nigger-Baiter is talking) Mother, could I have a quick cup of tea please. I have an important statement on Rhodesia to make in the Commons at six.

(Sound of an explosion out of vision. Cut to reveal Mrs. Nigger-Baiter's chair charred and smoking. Mrs. Nigger-Baiter is no longer there. The upholstery is smoldering gently.)

Mrs. Shazam: Oh, Mrs. Nigger-Baiter's exploded.

Son: Good thing, too.

Mrs. Shazam: She was my best friend.

Son: Oh, mother, don't be so Sentimental. Things explode every day.

Mrs. Shazam: Yes, I suppose so. Anyway, I didn't really like her that much.

(The doorbell rings. Mrs. Shazam goes to the door.
